Nutrition and Behavioural Science. Blood Flow Restriction. Race Reviews
Listen now
In this episode, we take a closer look at the world of behavioural science in relation to nutrition. Together with David Dunne of Hexis we discuss the complexities of nutrition, the psychological impact of past behaviors, stigmas and body composition, and how technology-based interventions can help athletes sustain long-term nutritional behaviors. Bevan and Tim review the weekend’s racing plus we revisit the ‘Super Shoe’ debate and share Ruth Astle’s recent work on testing which carbon shoe is best for her. Lastly, don't miss our discussion on blood flow restriction training and its potential applications in improving endurance performance. Dr. Richard Ferguson shares his insights on occlusion training and the results of his sprint interval study, explaining how blood pressure cuffs can be used to partially occlude the arterial supply, creating a hypoxic response and an alteration in intramuscular metabolic status. Discover how the body responds to the stress of exercise and how blood flow restriction training can be used in combination with low-intensity or lower load exercise for optimal results.
